Dan Freeman, the spook who sat by the door, is enlisted in the CIA’s elitist espionage program. Upon mastering agency tactics, however, he drops out to train young Black Chicagoans to combat racism as Freedom Fighters in this explosive novel.

With its focus on the militancy that characterised the Black Power movement of the 1960s and 1970s, this is the story of one man’s reaction to ruling-class hypocrisy in ways that make the novel autobiographical and personal. As a tale of a reaction to the forces of oppression, this book is universal.

An important, original, nitty-gritty book. — Dick Gregory “is an American comedian”

Blends James Bond parody with wit and rage.– “Time”

The place names and people took me back home, but the scenes of police violence against protesters brings this book from a relic of the past into the very real present.–Jeff Waxman “Literary Hub”
